Montana, I'm in Love With You

What are your sources of inspiration?  For me, it's magnificent natural places, whether near or far.  We just came back from a week long ski trip to Big Sky, Montana, and everything about that part of the country was amazing -- the wide open spaces, the millions of stars at night, the feeling that the land is vast and the people are few.  The oceans are my first love, but now the mountains are a close second.
